As he and the other passengers deplane and walk across to the terminal, Frank pauses for a moment and asks the man beside him for a light.

What a treat!

Gershwin: Porgy and Bess. This 1951 Columbia Masterworks 3-LP recording was made from the standard performing version of Porgy and Bess at that time, and it was the most complete recording made of the opera up to that time. Actually, there was still an hour of cuts made from Gershwin's original score. Conducted by Lehman Engel, and starring Lawrence Winters as Porgy and Camilla Williams as Bess. Several performers from the original 1935 cast are here: Warren Coleman, Helen Dowdy, Eddie...
